So those of you that've seen the Blog know what I'm on about, my grand project
I'd like some input if I could, from you, the brains trust! I started the project with a fairly vague plan I.E. 15k each army... that's it... But as I am getting more and more of my first army done (Delfs) I am finding my original plan for them, which was to be purely Har-Ganeth isn't sitting so well with me anymore. I kind of feel I should be representing the core of each race, not building huge armies of the facet that I alone am interested in... I feel my 15k should represent the whole of each race! Now I know many of you will say "Bro its your hobby, its your collection you do you" and that's very valid. I also feel that this is sort of bigger than me and what I want. I've gotten some great feedback on my insta and the blog its self from old school EE players and collectors, many of them looking forward to the time I start the army they are most fond of. Ive had guys ask me to paint up some cold ones and a hydra (I was originally not going to have them in the army) My question is; Once I have this completed will I look back and go "shit I wish I'd've been more of a purist" or will I look back and go "Yea, that's my art and there is my mark" Im torn because I WANT it to be mine, Like all of us who take joy from painting and story telling but I also want to commit and preserve the world that was. What do you guys think? In all honesty right now I'm leaning toward the latter, focusing my huge armies on representing the true heart of Warhammer!
(As an aside anyone who eventually wants to off load anything, let me know, as the longer this takes the harder stuff will be to come by!)
